Subject: okay - lovelight jam at end of "Rap"
At about the 1:50 mark in the second track - a little Lovelight, perhaps?

Subject: historic
what a neat little piece of history! Very interesting to hear Cassady. Wish there was more to it than just these snippets.

Subject: Almost Unlistenable (But Historically Interesting)
I hope this was recorded from one of the open microphones they'd have had scattered around at an acid test. That might explain some of the unexplainable parts of the first few minutes.

There are parts, like after the 6:00 mark where the playing is hot.

There's also a trumpet played around the 4:00 mark. Phil, was that you?

Subject: Not Grateful Dead from 1965
I spoke with Lawrence Schiller, who made the original record that sampled this tape. The group was called Fire and Ice, from LA.

Originally I thought someone misread 'sounds of the "Acid Test"' from the sleeve and inferred the band snippets were the Dead; but that refers to a recording of Kesey and his weird music from (I think) January 29, 1966.

But, this appears to have been released from a studio session that was not itself released. They put out an LP - The Happening - just after Schiller's (and Dr. Sidney Cohen's) record, but this track - Speed Limit - is not on it.

There is an extended version of Cassady & The Dead from the Straight Theater opening here: http://www.thestraight.com/sounds.html ENJOY! Historic to say the least...glad it survived.

Subject: Funny to be listening to this on the Day of the Dead,
2011. This is the second time I've heard this, and it was the first recording I listened to on the archive, 1 year ago! It's definitely a must-have for collectors. You kind of have to be in the right mood for it.

Subject: It's ah flashback...
Uh, it made me flashback to the....

Now we know where Cap'n Beefheart got his technique ("it's recorded through a fly's ear, you gotta have a fly's eye to see it...") and I can see it, even if nobody else can....

What great stuff! If only Jerry could cut loose and get past the sluggish guitar riff's.... hahahahahahahahaaa! Now we know where Frank Zappa got his obsession with "fast", yet made subtle cuts about Jerry over the years...

Even so, it is clear that the seeds were sown and I could hear the roots of at least three later songs in all the "art".

Worth repeated listens!
